[talking over each other] >> i don't think the reconciliation of what they said was untrue -- the misstatements in a coming out, is going to be a victim. i would think the fact that they misled the american people and continue to do so, that will be a big thing. i think the october surprise some of the drama of bringing those to blame to justice will be a big thing. and that will injure the president's benefits. it will probably be a political net plus for both obama. >> i don't think obama would act immaturely i'm not for any reason whatsoever. >> you should see the libyan people themselves come out and make a very strong statement. we want justice and galicia attacking the nex

and keep going at it. no one believes it because it's not true. >> how can he he know that? fbi teams are just arriving in libya. the investigation is underway. we know that they were armed -- the attackers at least in lib afterthe embassy were armed with rocket propelled grenades, you pick those up as you are heading toward the protest? >> you are exactly right. the white house has a handle on the intent of the attackers? they have no clue. common sense tells you it's bigger than a video. >> the problem is it goes to the rationale of the obama candidacy four years ago which was total condemnation of the bush policy. total condemnation of our position, especially in the muslim world. so the president, president obama preached empathy, preached an association based on his past and his education and based upon where he grew up and said, listen, i understand you. now the muslim world has rejected it and, in some ways, rejecting not only america but the obama presidential handout. >> that is certainly charles krauthammer's theory. he was on "special report" last night. >> this has nothing
watched that video as he was receiving his first intelligence briefing at the fbi building in los angeles. but then there was that mother jone video that came out overnight. we don't have a sense as to whether or not he's watched that video yet, but his campaign has said that the comments he made in that mother jones video regarding israel are consistent with what he has said before. i asked kevin madden at one point, do you think all of this is going to blow over? and, brooke, his comment was, depends on you guys. talking about us. >> i'm curious, you clarify one of his remarks. one thing he didn't touch on last night, let me play part of the clip and i'll ask you the question on the other side. you talk about the news conference thrown together, media numbers in shorts and t-shirts. >> it is not elegantly stated. let me put it that way. i'm speaking off the cuff, in response to a question, and i'm sure i could state it more clearly and in a more effective way than i did in a setting like that. and so i'll -- i'm sure i'll point that out as time goes on. but we don't even have the questi
facilities, i would refer you to the state department. >> separate from the fbi investigation you mentioned a few moments ago, is there any sort of inquiry going on here at the white house among the president's national security team to get to the bottom of, you told the american people on september 10th we've taken steps to protect americans here at homeland and abroad, obviously with four americans tragically being killed, the steps were not good enough. is there an inquiry going on here to figure out what went wrong? >> you're conveniently -- motivation behind them will be decided by that investigation. >> what carney did do there is sidestep the specific question whether or not there was some kind of inquiry into someone potentially dropping the ball here. instead he talked broadly about the overall investigation into the violence there in libya, joe. >> dan, stay with us. i want to bring in arwa damon in benghazi. she's on the phone. and cnn foreign affairs reporter elise labott at the state department. arwa, first to you. you've been talking to libyan officials. what's the latest on w
the fbi is trying to resolve is how and when they learned of the annex. glen daugherty and tyrone woods were killed there in an attack that was even better equipped and more sophisticated on the first wave. >> people on the ground have seen the fragments. the remains of the mortars and the heavy weapons that were used. >> we have made clear that there were armed assailants who used heavy weapons. >> i just don't think that people come to protest equipped with rpg's and other heavy weapons. >> president obama was first briefed about the benghazi attack about 90 minutes after it began. what has emerged since then, however, from the missed opportunities to redress the inadequate security to the deaths involved and the geopolitical ramifications of the event up to and including the shifting accounts of it put forward by the administration is the dawn of a major foreign policy scandal. one, alisyn, dave, and clayton, that will be investigated and dissected in hearings and official proceedings for years to come. back to you guys in new york. >> will it be an issue now with 45 days left before
